We're putting on Webmaker Training Days for Mozilla Reps from March 1 - 6 in Athens.

This event will empower Reps like you to grow webmaking communities in your neighborhood. It will help you mentor other makers and educators so that they can run their own webmaking events.

You'll be part of the design process for Webmaker in 2013 -- what we should do, what we should build, and how it all fits together.

The Details

  • March 1 - 6, 2013
  • in Athens, Greece
  • 40 Reps from around the world
  • training, testing and hacking together


This event will be well documented. If you can't attend in person, there still will be many ways to participate and shape the program -- don't worry!

Hope you can join us in Athens,

// Laura, Michelle, William + Pierros
